flavor is very full and rich and balanced. charcoal hint adds a nice touch. oak is at a nice level, not overdone. may use all english ingredients, but a very american beer.

Three Floyds just keeps impressing me! Wonderful English IPA, with rich malt tones. Hops and malt linger on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It’s about as perfect of beer as you can find. I will warn you drink this one quickly it will give you a buzz with one pint. I would expect a bitter flavor with something with this high of abv level. But it has a great flavor and aroma.

Bomber at Jerry’s. Caramel with big, foamy off-white head / Nose of fresh hops & citrus / Medium body, forward malts match big hops / Flavors of pine, orange, grapefruit, and a big dose of caramel / Outstanding - a companion brew to Dreadnaught, with a more modest hop profile plus the caramel kick.

Clear orange pour into half pint glass. Inch tall white head. Citrus and floral hop aroma. Deeeeelicious smells from this beer. Sweet and hoppy flavor. Great aftertaste, exactly the same as the aroma.

SamsonAle (13) - Novelty, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2010
This is nearly my favorite beer. Starts off with a nice thick head giving off a hoppy aroma. First sip coats your mouth with a full taste of the English malts and hops and finishes with a mild hop bite.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2008 On tap at Map Room as "ThulzaDoom". This was just brilliant! Poured a lovely copper color, with a off-white dense head. Piney/hoppy aroma, with some grapefruit, lemon, and something remniscent of caramel. Medium-bodied, and bursting with flavor. The fruits and grasses were well-balanced with the signature 3F hoppy bitterness. Coated the mouth well. Finish was long and hoppy.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Light gold color with a bounitful head of foam. Great hop nose, pure 3 Floyds. Minty, super juicy and citrusy, also a little herbaceous as well. Flavor has a ton of character and is nearly perfect. Incredibly well balanced. Super hoppy and bitter, with a lot of juicy citrus character, a lush malt character of caramel and sugared fruits, and then on top of all that, it has well intergrated oak hints of vanilla and toasted wood. A surprise. What a well crafted brew.

Golden orangefrom 22oz bottle, cold.Off-white head and small lace. Aroma of cranberry and Pez.This is another real winner from 3F! Lots of hops and earthy old citrus in the middle, vanilla with pepper with an almost creamy mouth. The finish is straight hops - very crisp for this style. I wish I could afford two or three more right now!

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2009 Aroma: Apricot, pear, pumpkin, earthy, very unique aroma. Very different than any other IPA I have had. Slightly sweet. Appearance: Dark golden, more amber than any IPA i’ve had before. Unique so far looking forward to taste. Flavor: Apricot, spiced pumpkin, pear - tastes like it smells. IBUs only apparent on finish. Has chocolate earthy overtones at every point. Palate: Soft, smooth, porter like finish with slight carbonation. Very, very nice. Overall Impression: A truly unique beer. Seems weird to think of it at an IPA with the chocolate, earthy fruits, and waning bitterness. Unique and fantastic brew.
